CopyCat-ing: Lightening Bolts

Over the weekend, my friend Seventeen came over to my house to share cocktails and let me do her nails. I opened up my nail inspiration board on pinterest and told her to pick a photo, that I would do my best to copy it. She immediately chose lightening bolt nails which I was super happy about since I've wanted to try them soon anyway.

Although I've been doing nails seriously (not professionally) for over a year and a half, I've only recently started to practice freehand designs and painting and I am loving it. This was also the first time I have used acrylic paint on a mani and it worked great, I only wish I'd used a toothpick or a safety pin instead of a dotting tool to do the bolts, so my lines would be thinner. Next time! I had a lot of fun sipping lemon lime gin and painting nails.  ( ・ω・)
